L'Ile des Embiez is a small island in the South of France, in the Var (83) département.
It's a place I've often visited as a child and that I re-discovered in my mid 20s. This is one of my favourite places on earth, it features beautiful beaches, pine forests, an aquarium presenting local marine life and has it's own vineyards.
This map celebrates l'Ile des Embiez in pure analog medium: paper, ink and watercolour.
DTLA by Michelle KimLos Angeles, California, US
Downtown Los Angeles has much to offer in terms of food, coffee/study spots, ice cream, impactful and diverse non-profits, and cultural monuments. I picked this area because there's always something going on every week and you can never get sick of the diverse cultural aspects of Downtown LA, Arts District, Chinatown, and Little Tokyo!
Took a week long relaxing family road trip beyond Sydney with my husband and toddler son. We had lots of fun staying over at quirky accommodations and discovering good eats and sights along the way.
At the start of 2017 my partner and I bought our first home- a narrowboat. We spent the summer perusing the waterways of the UK including cruising to the source of the great river. Most people will only recognise 'the Thames' as the vast river which flows through central London. Far away from the city, the river takes on a very different persona, it is wild and full of life. I created this map to communicate the importance of the river to the wildlife and many towns it passes.
